    Question Access other user's documents...

    Is there a way I can access other users documents from my user if I know their password?

    Assuming you mean in code, and you are on XP, you can use LogonUser followed by ImpersonateLoggedOnUser. Remember to call RevertToSelf once you're done. It is recommended that you don't store passwords.
